As a little kid, playing hockey was not only a sport to me it was time to see your friends and do what I loved to do the most, fly up and down the rink. When the winter months hit and the temperature starts to fall, the ponds start to freeze, that means it’s pond hockey time. There is no time limit, no penalties and you can hot dog all you want.

The last weekend in January and the first weekend of February, Haliburton becomes host to one of the biggest out door pond hockey tournaments in Canada. There are 32 rinks on Head Lake with around 1600 hockey player’s. It’s such a great atmosphere and a beautiful sight to any hockey fan.

Each weekend my wife, baby and I climb into my Chevy Colorado... aka the white sheep… aka the cottage vehicle and drive up to the cottage in hopes to make it up before the sunset or in time for a quick ski or for dinner. We are really hoping to fit in all three! But, if we don't get it all in Friday night, we still have the rest of the weekend to do that plus… play games, BBQ's, see friends and family, campfires, swimming, skating, tobogganing, beers, pranks, boating, cliff jumping, rope swings, water falls, river rides, fire works, relax and so much more! I love the cottage and everything that goes with it.
